/m67753 Nope, they haven`t pulled that crap on us yet. You`re gonna have "stationary events" no matter what type of delivery you have on your route.

/m67752 They were created.

Anybody hearing about "stationary events"? I supposedly had almost 1 hour 45 mins of them the other day. Amazing I beat their estimated return time by 45 mins doing nothing for 1.75 hours. I guess they dont know where the events happen just that they are happening. Sounds like a useful tool.

Hersbird /m67750 ... Why do you not believe in macroevolution? Where did all the present species come from?

Heat index of 106 around here today and days like this are the ones that I do not miss since I retired. I had a 6 mile walking route and actually thought it was cooler walking outside than it was in the LLV that was at 120 degrees or more. I don't know how I did it. Would take a cooler with 8-10 bottles of water, park in the shade for lunch or get into some AC, and lather up with sunscreen. A pith helmut helped. Got totally dehydrated once and vowed to never do it again. Woman in the front yard and I asked for "aqua frio". Stay hydrated carriers; there are more dog days of Summer on the way. BTW, some people do leave their dogs out in the Summer on a short leash and they often get rapped around the pole to the point they can't get to the food and water bowls. If you know the neighborhood and the dog, an extra bottle of water goes a long way.

This is what is so amazing about Canis lupus which all dogs and wolves are. All of them teacup maltese to grey wolf or great dane. It has just been in the last couple centuries they most all appeared (because of selective breeding). I don't buy macroevolution but this is a great example of microevolution and shows how amazing the design really is.

I can't help thinking that someday, 500,000 years from now, Alien visitors to a barren, frozen Wasteland Earth will first dig up a perfectly preserved body of a two-headed fish, near Fukushima. They will wonder how this strange, two-headed species that once populated Earth, managed to get by.

Mother Nature's Animal kingdom variant of Quasimodo, the Hunchbacked Bell-Ringer of Notre Dame. But just a regular animal (or Human) nonetheless.

Thanks Hersbird. I saw some video of something similar (huge) being chased off by a dog and it was probably the same kind of wolf.

/m67742 those tests on the "wolf like" creature are back... just a wolf. A big azz young female wolf, but a wolf none the less.

/m67743 The T6 still gets more pay right? So it should still be the same. The "Brown memo" that clarified this would still apply.

"When a carrier technician (T-6) is absent for an extended period and another
employee serves the series of 5 routes assigned to the absent T-6, the replacement
employee shall be considered as replacing the T-6, and he shall be paid at the T-6
level of pay for the entire time he serves those routes, whether or not he performs
all of the duties of the T-6 When a carrier technician’s absence is of sufficiently
brief duration so that his replacement does not serve the full series of routes
assigned to the absent T-6, the replacement employee is not entitled to the T-6 level
of pay. In addition, when a T-6 employee is on extended absence, but different carriers
serve the different routes assigned to the T-6, those replacements are not entitled
to the T-6 level of pay. The foregoing should be implemented in a straight-forward
and equitable manner. Thus, for example, an employee who has carried an
absent T-6 carrier’s routes for four days should not be replaced by another employee
on the fifth day merely in order to avoid paying the replacement higher level

/m67742 I saw a few of photos of it. It's clearly a Canis lupus as a species. I don't know why people get so hung up on more precise then that, what subspecies exactly... well it wasn't a Chihuahua. It takes a few weeks to get DNA testing done, but they should have it soon. There was no bear about that thing when you see the other pictures, a dog/wolf paw plain as day, same thing with the tail. Makes a good headline, and good fodder for the Dogman podcast. Sasquatch encounters get boring after awhile.

Does anyone know the answer to this question? In November, all Grade 1 carriers get elevated to Grade 2 and the Grade 2 carriers stay at Grade 2 but get a pay increase. Will regular carriers be allowed to OPT(assign to higher level article 25) to T6 positions even though everyone will be the same grade? Will CCA's be allowed to opt to T6 position since it is no longer higher level?

Hersbird, is that a legit story about that weird wolf/bear odd-looking unidentified animal caught in Montana?

/m67736 At least they didn't press on, with plans to abolish routes :) Someone in Mismanagement had a GLIMMER of Understanding, where that would lead them. Enjoy the Overtime. As a City Carrier, that's about the only compensation we ever got. Get used to it. Myself, I was rarely on ANY form of O.T. List, but the MOST Overtime I ever worked, was when I was on no List at all - something like 600 O.T. hours, for the year. Everything was a Mandate. Go figure.

P.S. - Grievances WERE filed. But the ONLY people who got anything out of it, were the people ON the List, who claimed they "were denied" the Overtime opportunities. THEY got PAID. I got nothing. That's how it works. :P :P :P
